OSHKOSH (NBC 26) — Motorists are asked to avoid the area of High Avenue in Oshkosh and use alternate routes due to an emergency water repair.

City officials report that a valve controlling water service to the property located at 1118 High Avenue failed, causing the need for an emergency repair.

This area of High Avenue is also the detour for Algoma Boulevard, which is currently under construction.

High Avenue is being restricted to one lane to maintain a safe working space for repair crews. A flagger will direct traffic if necessary.

The repair is anticipated to take up to six hours to complete.

Motorists are encouraged to avoid the area if possible and stay alert for slowed or stopped traffic.
